A sheet bend and boline are a similarly identical knot structure, but utterly different in application and construction.<br>
<br>
What books/resources would y'all reccommend on knot theory?<br>

From a knot theory perspective, for example, a strangle knot and a surgeon's<br>
knot are the same knot (I can demonstrate this in person, the next time<br>
someone sees me), but in practice they are wildly different knots with<br>
different purposes.<br>

I'd like to see this. Those sorts of same-but-really-not situations<br>
always fascinate me.<br>
